iTunes 5 Appears Ready

* from MacRumors.com:

iTunes 5 to accompany Apple music announcements Thursday? Several rumor sites have suggested this to be so. We have recently seen test builds of iTunes 5, and it does indeed appear to include WMA audio support -- even with the Mac version. The Windows version still has some outstanding bugs -- not something one would expect only days from release, although the build in question was compiled roughly one week ago -- including sometimes completing MP3 CD burns without giving an error even though the disc in question is damaged and will not play.

They need to focus on getting Safari straight. I've stopped using it because it crashed so much. Posted by: Rashunda on October 15, 2003 10:05 AM

Rashunda: Safari is still a baby. Besides, it will probably be enhanced/upgraded with the release of Panther. Compared to the troubles of IE, I think it's pretty good given it's relative youth. (Altho I am pretty close to using a FireBird as my default browser) ej: Give it a chance. This report is from old rumors. I'm sure Apple will have the major bugs worked out by the time of release.

I haven't tried Firebird. I went back to Mozilla. I agree that Mozilla is a hog though. I may give FB a try. Posted by: Rashunda on October 16, 2003 03:44 AM
